I caught this addiction from my sister, Meredith. I blame her. She’s an enabler. Mer did a post about this wonderful crochet pattern that she’d discovered through another blogger. It’s called Queen Anne’s Lace. She urged me to check it out. I did, and I’m hooked. This is an easy pattern – it works up quickly. And if you use a self-striping yarn, like this Mochi Plus by Crystal Palace – oh, how pretty it is.
This one’s for me. Not because I’m selfish or anything (well, maybe a tad) but because I needed a prototype, if you will. I’m also going to try it in a chunkier yarn. I think a chunky yarn would make a warmer, heavy-duty scarf for the winter. This one is the kind I could wear all the time – inside or out. By the way, I found the pattern here.
It sure makes a difference having Letitia around to model my creations. She does it well, don’t you think?
I know of a couple of young ladies who would look adorable in one of these – perhaps for Christmas? Between these and the afghan, I’ve become crocheting-obsessed. And I love this yarn, which I found at my (drum roll) new neighborhood yarn store! It’s in an old barn. I’ve already been there twice. I’m going to take some photos there and post about it later this week.
Scout has a comment on all this endless ‘creating.’
I hear you, Princess Scout, I hear you.
Don’t forget to read my book review of Mrs. Kennedy. Just scroll down one post. I’m giving away a copy of this wonderful book to one lucky commenter. You must comment on that post and you have until Wednesday.
